Pizza Piena – Italian Easter Pie | The Cooking Show

On this episode of The Cooking Show Farideh makes Pizza Piena, also known as Pizza Rustica, Pizza Gain, or Pizza Chiena. This savory pie is typically eaten for Easter in Italy, as it’s loaded with three different cheeses and four types of meat, two foods that are often given up for Lent. Farideh starts by making her own dough with eggs and lard, before forming the pie and layering in mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan, ham, salami, and pepperoni. The result is a flaky, salty dish that’s basically a charcuterie board in a pie. Check out the recipe here:
